London, Oct.7 (ANI): Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard says he is proud to be nearing his 500th club appearance, but adds that his real target is a Premier League winner's medal.
Club skipper Gerrard has played 494 games for the Reds, scoring 123 goals, and could play his 500th match away at Lyon next month.
The Daily Express quoted Gerrard as saying: "It's something that I'm really proud of, to be getting close to 500 games for Liverpool. Growing up, it was always my dream to play for Liverpool and I'd have been happy as a kid kicking a ball about if I only got to play one game for the club, so to have got to 500 games will mean a lot to me and my family and friends."
Gerrard, 29, could soon overtake Reds legend Kenny Dalglish, who made 515 appearances for the club, scoring 172 goals and winning 19 pieces of major silverware.
"I don't just want to play games, I want to be a part of a Liverpool side that is in there winning prizes, year in and year out," Gerrard said. (ANI)
